CMS recently released an ICD-10-CM resource for specialties and specific conditions and services that collects varied educational tools, including webcasts, case studies, and clinical concept guides.

The clinical concept guides, offered for broad topics such as cardiology and orthopedics, include common codes for the related specialty, a primer for clinical documentation, and clinical scenarios.  

The resource includes links to all of CMS’ interactive case studies, which provide a medical case and ask specific documentation and coding questions. Upon completion, CDI specialists will be able to see which responses other CDI specialists chose, as well as sample documentation for the scenarios in ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM.
